CFP: (Edited Volume): Regal Reels: Hollywood's Fascination with Royalty (03/15/11; 01 November 2011)

Monday, January 24, 2011 - 9:32am
Scott F. Stoddart, Dean of Liberal Arts Fashion Institute of Technology / SUNY

Submissions are sought for a collection of essays titled Regal Reels: Hollywood's Fascination with Royalty.
Although in its infancy America rejected a monarchy as its form of government, Hollywood cinema has maintained a long fascination with royalty, and American audiences have eagerly patronized foreign films and television series that focus on royal families. The recent success of The King's Speech (Hopper 2010) attests that the royal family is a subject that continues to fascinate the American movie-going public. These films seem to be more than mere bio-pics; they appear to serve a political purpose that intrigues American audiences.

Spring 2011 issue: Writing with Sound

Today we live in a society defined--in many senses, and by almost all the connotations associated with the word as well--by the word 'current'.... The old hierarchies of linear thought, sublime (and sublimated!) engagements with art, poetry, music, science, and history are no longer needed to do the ideological work now conducted again along the lines of 'current.' (Miller 32)

Assembly for Expanded Perspectives on Learning (AEPL)

For over ten years, the Assembly for Expanded Perspectives on Learning has held annual conferences in a beautiful mountain setting for educators to immerse themselves in a dialogue about what gives their practice vitality and purpose. This year we have given the conference a name which conveys listening and seeing further than before: Perspectives.

We invite proposals for interactive workshops (and playshops) inspired by an aspect of the conference theme: love, wisdom, being the book, or being the change. Versions of these sessions will serve as material for future publications intended to influence teaching at all levels.

Perspectives welcomes proposals that tie the theme of the conference to our ongoing strands:
